I spent the weekend knitting up a scarf pattern I came across that I love, Love, LOVE! After working a few rows to get a feel for the stitch repeat and to see how big I wanted the chevrons, I ripped it out to start for reals. The color combination in the collage below is not the for reals part — although, the bone and dusty rose color does look divine together.
I'm knitting the scarf with Caron Simply Soft. I freakin' worship this yarn. It gives such great definition to stitches. I totally need to stock up on more 'cause it's the only yarn I'll use for anything wearable. Seriously, there are twenty colors I want, like, right this second. But, alas, I'm going to attempt to make this scarf with stash. At least for the first one.
My knitting sidekick lately has been Vanellope. She's getting better at leaving my yarn alone (or maybe she's tired of my melodrama whenever she goes near). It's kind of trippy 'cause I always say how crocheting and knitting each give me a different vibe and I've noticed that Kali prefers to stay close by to watch me crochet, but not knit, and Vanellope is the opposite. Maybe sewing will bring us all together.
